Course Description:

A survey of human anatomy and physiology. Topics will include the organization and structure of the major body systems, including muscular, skeletal, nervous, circulatory, digestive, excretory, endocrine, and reproductive. Emphasis placed on the integration of bodily processes and the impact of technology on human biology.

Essential Objectives:

1. Describe the structure and function of a cell and understand the major processes involved in its physiology.
2. Understand the anatomy and physiology of how the nervous and endocrine systems control body functions.
3. Describe the processes of development and reproduction at the cellular and structural levels and be able to discuss the role of genetics in this system.
4. Explain the basic anatomy and physiology of the cardiovascular, lymphatic, and respiratory systems.
5. Explain the basic anatomy and physiology of the digestive and urinary systems.
6. Understand the specific and interrelated functions of the major body systems.
7. Identify the placement of the major bones and muscles of the body and understand their basic physiology.
8. Understand the structure and function of the human sensory organs.
9. Explain how technology affects human biology and discuss the ethical issues associated with this topic.
10. Utilize the scientific method to evaluate well-researched evidence in the area of human biology.
11. Demonstrate proficiency in understanding, interpreting, evaluating, and applying quantitative data and information.

Methods:

To develop this class, a variety of teaching and learning methods will be used, reading and development of the topics, class discussion, videos, assignments, open book quizzes, and a final research project.

This course is entirely online and requires the use of your CCV email account to receive weekly announcements and communicate with the instructor.

Late submissions (Assignments, Discussions , Quizzes, Final Exam and Final Project) will not be accepted. Please, post your classwork early in the week in order to avoid any unexpected circumstances on Mondays.

Weekly reading will be assigned before class; therefore a textbook will be needed.

Human Biology by Sylvia S. Mader. McGraw Hil

The 16th is the most recent edition; the 15th, 14th, 13th and 12th edtions also work as well.

Evaluation Criteria:

A grade of 70 is required to complete the course.

· Quizzes: 12 (60 points) 15%

· Assignments: 4 (60 points) 15%

· Forums: 10 (120 points) 30%

· Final Project 1 (80 points) 20%

· Final Exam 1(80 points) 20%

Grading Criteria:


A + through A- (100-90): For any work to receive an A, it must clearly be exceptional or outstanding work. It must demonstrate insight and original thinking. It must not only demonstrate full understanding of the topic or issues addressed, but it must also provide a critical analysis of these. In addition, an A grade reflects a student’s ability to clearly and thoughtfully articulate his or her learning. The student who earns an A for the semester will be one who demonstrates a high level of mastery in meeting the essential objectives and completing assignments.

B+ through B- (89-80): For any work to receive a B, it must be good to excellent work. It must demonstrate strong originally, comprehension, critical thinking, and attention to detail. In addition, a B grade reflects a student’s ability to clearly articulate his or her learning. The student who earns a B for the semester will be one who clearly and solidly demonstrates mastery in meeting the essential objectives and completing assignments.

C+ Through C- (79-70): For any work to receive a C, it must meet the expectations of the assignment. It must demonstrate significant comprehension, critical thinking, and attention to detail. In addition, a C grade reflects a student’s ability to adequately articulate his or her learning. The student who earns a C for the semester will be one who demonstrates acceptable mastery in meeting the essential objectives and completing assignments.

D+ Through D- (69-60): For any work to receive a D, it must marginally meet the expectations of the assignment. It demonstrates minimal comprehension, critical thinking, and attention to detail. In addition, a D grade may reflect a student’s difficulty in articulating his or her learning. The student who earns a D for the semester will be one who demonstrates difficulty in meeting the essential objectives and masteringassignments. This grade indicates marginal performance and will not count as credit for specific program requirements or competence area requirements.

F (below 60): Work that receives an F grade does not meet the expectations or objectives of the assignment. It demonstrates consistent problems with comprehension, organization, critical thinking, and supporting detail. In addition, an F grade reflects a student’s inability to articulate his or her learning. Students who earn a grade of F on any work are strongly urged to discuss the matter with their faculty and advisor. The student who earns an F for the semester will be one who demonstrates little progress in meeting the essential objectives and mastering assignments. This grade indicates unacceptable performance and will not count as credit for specific program requirements or competence area requirements.

P: Pass. Equivalent to a D (+/-) or better and therefore course will not count as credit for the specific program requirements or competence area requirements.

NP: No Pass. Indicates failure to meet course objectives and/or failure to meet grading criteria for successful completion as described in the instructor’s course description.

Accessibility Services for Students with Disabilities: CCV strives to mitigate barriers to course access for students with documented disabilities. To request accommodations, please

  1. Provide disability documentation to the Accessibility Coordinator at your academic center. https://ccv.edu/discover-resources/students-with-disabilities/
  2. Request an appointment to meet with accessibility coordinator to discuss your request and create an accommodation plan.
  3. Once created, students will share the accommodation plan with faculty. Please note, faculty cannot make disability accommodations outside of this process.

Academic Honesty: CCV has a commitment to honesty and excellence in academic work and expects the same from all students. Academic dishonesty, or cheating, can occur whenever you present -as your own work- something that you did not do. You can also be guilty of cheating if you help someone else cheat. Being unaware of what constitutes academic dishonesty (such as knowing what plagiarism is) does not absolve a student of the responsibility to be honest in his/her academic work. Academic dishonesty is taken very seriously and may lead to dismissal from the College.
